Undergraduate Program

Department of Information Science & Engineering

Founded in 1999-2000 with an initial intake of 60 students, our department has grown into a center of academic excellence and innovation. Our faculty, comprised of highly qualified educators and accomplished research scholars, has consistently guided our students to academic success, with numerous VTU ranks to our credit.

However, our commitment goes beyond the classroom, as we provide comprehensive career guidance and maintain an outstanding placement record, ensuring our students are well-prepared for the job market.

To bridge the gap between academia and industry, we regularly organize technical talks, seminars, short-term courses, hands-on training, and workshops. These activities not only enhance our students’ practical skills but also keep our faculty members up-to-date with industry developments.

In essence, our department is a dynamic community dedicated to nurturing talent, fostering academic excellence, and equipping our students with the skills and knowledge to thrive in a rapidly evolving technological landscape.
